Surprisingly, it's not too corny.
4 December 2014 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

This is a superior Goosebumps episode, and one that is likely to raise the titular signs of fear on the arms of younger viewers.

Heather Bertram and John E. Campbell are Jodie and Mark, two youngsters visiting their grandparents at their farm. It isn't long until they notice that their grandparents are acting a bit strange. Things don't feel like they used to. Is the episode title to be taken literally? And if scarecrows are walking around at night, why would that change the behaviour of grandma and granpa?

Bertram and Campbell both do okay here, but there's more fun to be had watching Michael Copeman as Stanley, a farm helper who also seems to be acting strangely, and a young Kris Lemche (billed as Chris Lemche) as Stanley's teenage son.

Scott Peters does a decent job of bring the story to screen, and director Randy Bradshaw enjoys making some moments as scary as possible, especially during the first moment of tension.

The second half fizzes out slightly in comparison to the first half, but this is still a great episode of the show that gets the balance of fun and frights just right.
